ASUS P6X58D-E X58 - PC often won't POST and usually freezes when it does

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi

When I turn on my computer after leaving it to rest for 15+ minutes, it will POST and sometimes freeze while loading Windows. 50% of the time, it will freeze for a few minutes once it boots Windows. If it gets past those few minutes it usually won't freeze for at least a few hours, if at all.

When it doesn't POST, the fans just keep spinning infinitely. There're no beep codes or anything, just fans continue to spin with nothing displayed on screen.

Also CPU-z reports the CPU speed as 1,6 GHz no matter what, even with Intel burn test running and speedstep disabled. (http://i.imgur.com/MHzkW.png & http://i.imgur.com/GGPcb.png) Tempratures on all devices are well within the normal range. (http://i.imgur.com/AMN6S.png - cpu vcore seems very low?)

If I remove all RAM sticks the computer will usually still make no sounds but the fans will spin forever with no display. If the computer was going to Post anyway, I'll get the standard beep code indicating a ram problem. This is the same with each piece of hardware, and with nothing but the CPU plugged in the results are the same. I thought this might be due to the PSU but upon replacing it the issue persists.

GTX580
Asus P6x58d-e
750W PSU (this is the second one i've tried)

Thanks

Is it worth flashing the BIOS to the latest version?

Just curious, did you overclock anything?

Thinking about it now, this issue first arose after attempting to overclock yes. Initially I figured it was just a failed OC so I reset the CMOS (which I have done many times now), but it didn't fix the problem.

Can you boot into BIOS?

Whenever the PC posts, yes. But sometimes it will also freeze in the BIOS too.

If you do manage to boot into BIOS, check if your settings are all alright there? Reset all to default, save and exit then see if its still the same. You might need to flash your BIOS though if this doesn't work.

Have reset CMOS and reset to defaults, AND now flashed BIOS to the latest version but alas, no luck. Thanks for your suggestions though.

That's weird. Flashing made this error go away after I did it.

I certainly don't mean to be offensive but the PSU + electric outlet was off and the CMOS battery was taken out for 30 seconds or more?
